I was able to increase my reps and weight on all exercises across the board today. Sometimes I did the same reps as last week, but I know my form was much better today. So, I'm starting to certainly see some strength improvements. (And I'm officially down a notch on my belt)
One of the big improvements has been my performance in Ab Ripper X. Today I got to 48 on the Mason Twists before my legs fell out of the air and I crashed. I was 2 away from finishing with the folks on the DVD.
As a side note, Monica flew out to Novi, MI to visit me and go with me to the Bears game tomorrow. She went for a run on a treadmill and came back to the apartment while I was halfway through Ab Ripper. Kudos to her for trying to follow along with the rest of the workout. If it wasn't for her being in the room, I probably would have cashed my chips in earlier on the Mason Twists but she brought out the macho side and I had to work as hard as I could.
So Brad...no need to come to my house. I Pushed Play Today!
Keep on Bringing It.
